This is gunna be quite a short little post,I realise i havent written in a while (and at this point there is not many of you to write too, lol) but i hope you enjoy it regardless.
When i first came across the original I love Lucy TV series, i was absolutely spell bound. I watched a few quick snippets on you tube here and there, and was completely taken with Lucille Ball, who plays Lucy. Her whining voice and fiery red hair made up a gutsy young actress, with a sense of humor bar none!!!. I found there was really something to making movies and television shows in the 50's. It was truly an art, always touching, sentimental,dramatic and funny! do yourself a favour and go check it out, you wont regret it i promise.
Next to Lucy, i fell madly in love with Vivian Vance. Vivian played the land lady in the sitcom and was hysterical, as was most of the cast. I began to read up on Vivian and i was completely taken back by the pictures taken from her younger years.... all i can say is wow.
i found myself gooling all sorts of iconic pictures after i had seen these, and wondered where all the magic of photography had gone? its all about fancy lights, locations and perfect models. But many of the most iconic photos were taken in the spirit of the moment, and i truly believe thats why everyone really gravitates towards them, we can all relate to different scenes, and different emotions. Each picture really tells its own story.
take a look at some of my favourite iconic pictures:
